Langen Motorcycles was stated in 2019 and was borne out of a passion to create motorcycles unlike anything else on the road. It was started by Chris Ratcliffe, formerly CCM's Chief Design Engineer.

The Wigan based company has been founded with the aim of producing motorcycles with a simplicity and purity of days gone by, like the 'Ton-up boys' and their café racers. 

As its name suggests, Chris looks on their first creation, the Langen Two Stroke, as a final swansong for this method of internal combustion, with all the electric bikes currently being launched.

The bike will be handbuilt to an extremely high quality, with production of the first 100 individually numbered bikes set to begin in summer of 2022. A further 150 machines are planned for the following year and which can also be homologated for other markets. They have recently added a second model to their range, a retro modern performance machine called LightSpeed.

LEVC, standing for London Electric Vehicle Company, is the new name for the maker of the London black cab, and replaces its predecessor The London Taxi Company. Under various guises this company has been responsible for making this iconic vehicle for over seventy years. LEVC is a subsidiary of the Chinese company Geely, which also owns Volvo and holds a majority stake in Lotus Cars.

Now based in a new, purpose-built 37,000 sq ft factory in Ansty near Coventry, LEVC has recently launched it replacement for the current TX4 model, the electric, range extended TX. This taxi is new from the ground up and is an electric powered, range extended vehicle designed to meet London's latest stringent emission regulations for London taxis. They currently manufacture the TX taxi, the TX Shuttle and the VN5 van, all powered by the same electric, range extender powerplant.

Lister, founded in 1954, produced Britain’s most successful sports racing car of the 1950's, the Lister-Jaguar. The 'Cars from Cambridge' were designed, and built by racing driver Brian Lister, his big break coming when he was offered the engines and gearboxes by William Lyons from the retiring Jaguar D Types. Lyons was correct in believing that Lister would be capable of developing a race winning car, thus keeping the Jaguar name in the forefront of racing, at little cost to Jaguar and so Lister-Jaguar was born. Brian Lister designed and built a new lightweight and aerodynamic chassis and ‘knobbly’ body to take the Jaguar drive train and the world’s best sports racing car of the 1950’s was born! For five seasons from 1954 Lister cars were always in the headlines and consistently beat the much larger works teams such as Aston Martin and Jaguar.

Laurence Pearce took over in 1995 and designed a new series of Lister Storm GT race cars and spent the next decade rebuilding the racing heritage. The 'glory days' were back with winning drivers such as Tiff Needell. Now, as a totally re-organised company under the ownership of the Warrantywise Group, they are once again building the several iconic Lister Continuation cars together with the altogether contemporary Lister LFT-666 and LFT-C, based on the Jaguar F-Type and the Stealth, based on the Jaguar F-Pace, from their factory in Cambridge .              

Over more than 60 years in the making, Lotus has become both a class-leading manufacturer of class-leading sports cars and a globally respected automotive engineering consultancy, working with many of the world's most prestigious car manufacturers.

From humble beginnings when Colin Chapman built his first trial car in a lock-up in 1948, motorsport was the driving force; indeed it was his desire to create competitive race cars that drove him to produce road cars in order to finance his racing ambitions! The motorsport influence has continued throughout the company's evolution. Geely, the Chinese automotive heavyweight, took a majority stake in Lotus in Spring 2017 and now owns the company.

The motorsport heritage remains at the heart of Lotus today and the strategic link to developing cars which offer superlative handling and performance for driving on the race track or on the road. Lotus Cars are designed, developed and built at their history-charged manufacturing facility in Hethel, Norfolk, where the company has been based since 1966.
